Most in the Fortnite community would agree that new interactive Shopping Carts have been a successful addition to the popular Battle Royale title.

Not only do many find the new vehicles fun to use, they can also prove very useful when trying to quickly escape the Storm or get out of tight situations.

However, there appears to be a new glitch involving the Shopping Carts that is allowing players to access the Spawn Island, the pregame area where players wait for the Battle Bus to take them into the game.

Previously, the island was inaccessible once the match started, and anyone trying to build or glide to it would come up against an invisible wall surround the island that would not allow them to progress.

A video posted by YouTuber ‘OrangeGuy’ shows the method of how to access the island, and it appears to require more than one person, a Shopping Cart, a very large amount of materials, and some luck.

Here are the steps, according to the video, of how to use the new Shopping Cart glitch to access the Spawn Island.

  1. To start this glitch off, go as close as you can to the Spawn island and make the same structure as we did.
    1. The structure is a long bridge built from the Main Ssland to the Spawn Island.
    2. At the end of the bridge, there is a long, downward angled ramp with a sharp upward incline at its end.
  2. Once you’ve done that, simply push yourself off with that cart and pray that you make it! 😀
  3. Now just try to aim yourself towards the island, and if you are luck you will make it!! 😀

Obviously this endeavor is essentially a one way trip, since the Storm will surely eliminate anyone who goes that deep into it with now fast way back.

However, the end result is quite remarkable and unique as not many people can say they’ve made it to Spawn Island once the match has already started.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
